The Greatest Band Performance On TV - Ever!

Back in the mid 80's (January 1986) as they were being "pushed" towards commercialization by Sire. The Replacements came back on later in the show to do "Kiss Me On The Bus". Westerberg, Tommy and Mars swapped clothes. No one wanted to wear Bob's jumpsuit, which at that point had ripped down to his pubes. Between the drunkenness and the cursing (right before the guitar break, Westerberg yells "motherfucker" at Bob), it would be a long time until they were asked back.

Tater Totz - Mono/Stereo

Today's selection goes out to Jeffen at Music Ruined My Life. They posted up some awesome REDD KROSS  stuff lately and here's something unhinged and Redd Kross related. It's the Tater Totz - which is the McDonald brothers from Redd Kross plus the Runaway's Cherie Currie and White Flag's Pat Fear. I assume it's Cherie doing the wicked Yoko Ono impersonations on this album, but I'm not sure.

On this album (Mono/Stereo) - they embark on some seriously acid crazed deranged versions of Beatles and solo Beatle work. And by solo, it's stuff like "The Luck Of The Irish" and "Two Virgins".

plus, as an added bonus, you get 2 Os Mutantes songs.

So... download, do some bongloads, and enjoy!

An Open Letter To Steven Tyler

Dear Steven Tyler: BLOW ME. Eat my ass and suck my dick. You motherfucking asshole.

It's pathetic enough that you have have inflicted Diane Warren and Desmond Child penned treacle on Aerosmith fans (and Joe Perry and the other three relics in the 'Smith stand accused as well). However, your appearance on American Idol is the last straw.

Now, don't get me wrong, I could care less if you performed on national TV in a fucking tutu and fellated Jennifer Lopez's  2 inch cock while licking Ryan Seacreast's twat. Or did Tampax commercials. Or for that matter, ran for vice president of the USA on a Palin/Tyler ticket. Well, maybe that's a little too far. Palin's worse than AI.

However... WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU to deem what is and what is not "star worthy" or acceptable in music? Do you think that your rubber lipped persona circa 1971 would have even made it based on looks or for that matter "talent"? No fucking way. And yet, you sit on a panel crushing people's dreams. And, even worse... ridiculing them!!!!! Some of the poor bastards might have even picked up a guitar or dreamed of making it because Aerosmith music inspired them! And you lord yourself over them and, like a twisted 21st century Pontius Pilate, give these wretches a thumbs up or a thumbs down.


Do you need the money that badly for your next excursion into rehab? Are your alimony and child support payments too high? Or are you just another old and sad fame whore?

You piece of shit scumbag. You've destroyed your rock n roll legacy. I hope this insures you burn in Hell forever.

Meanwhile GIRL IN A COMA should find you and kick your lame wrinkled ass.

Trust Your "Mechanic"

On New Years eve, in Arkansas, thousands of birds fell dead from the sky and close to 100,000 fish washed up dead. Apparently, this has not created any kind of worry with our trustworthy "officials". I have been checking google maps to see if any towns in Arkansas have "disappeared". You know how it goes: traffic is rerouted, soldiers in biohazard suits with automatic weapons are stationed at the highway exits, next thing you know, Captain Trips is a-coming and Randall Flagg is helping people choose sides.

Nothin' to see here, folks!

HEY- If you haven't gotten the Grinderman 2 album yet, whaddya waiting for? Check the video below and multiply by a whole album.  I ain't posting any songs to d/l because Nick Cave deserves your money!!!!!!!

Come to think of it, Nick Cave might be responsible for all the dead birds and fish!

Better Things

Hoping that the New Year brings you BETTER THINGS!

These Important Years (Husker Du)

Well, you get up every morning
And you see, it's still the same
All the floors and all the walls
And all the rest remains
Nothing changes fast enough
The hurry, worry days
It makes you want to give it up
And drift into a haze

Revelations seems to be another way
To make the days go faster anyways

We're all exchanging pleasantries
No matter how we feel
And no one knows the difference
'Cause it all seems so unreal
You'd better grab a hold of something
Simple but it's true
If you don't stop to smell the roses now
They might end up on you

Expectations only mean you really think you know
What's coming next, and you don't

Yearbooks with their autographs
From friends you might have had
These are your important years
You'd better make them last
Falling in and out of love just like...
These are your important years, your life

Once you've seen the light, you finally
Realize it might end up all right
It might end up all right now
